Paul Weller - This is the Modern World - Small, Giclée on Hahnemuhle German Etch with hand torn edges by Mike Edwards

'Paul Weller - This is the Modern World' is a giclée print by Mike Edwards. From a limited edition of 100, this print is signed and numbered by the artist.

There are 2,053 individual letters in this portrait of Paul Weller. A vintage typewriter font is used to create the basic structure, then each single letter is coloured by hand, often three or four times as adjustments are made. This means it takes around 10,000 letter renderings by hand to get to the final image.

"The piece was created in Brighton, the spiritual home of the Mod [Quadrophenia], and Weller is often referred to as 'The Modfather'. As a reference to this, I've included a hint of a target, the Mod signifier, but have made it visually subtle as I think that, while Weller will always be associated with Mod culture, as an artist he has much more of a broader scope"

About The Artist - Mike Edwards

Mike is a Brighton-based contemporary artist who has pioneered his own style of typographic art by creating stunning limited edition art prints of music artists solely from a mix of their words, lyrics and song titles. The artist seeks to transform prose into a visual image that viewers can easily comprehend.


Mike says of his work: "In the same way songs sonically amplify the meaning of words, my work is about creating a visual form that can enhance or change meaning in words". Mike's pieces draw inspiration from contemporary media, art history, Pop Art, classical painting and Rock and Roll. We love how Mike’s innovative and unique ‘Word Paintings’ render each letter a different colour, instilling an intense sense of depth that is a delight to the eye.

Mike received a Bachelor of Fine Arts from the Birmingham Institute of Art and Design before participating in his first group exhibition Lexigrahpica at The Chameleon Gallery, Brighton. SInce then, Mike has built a successful career, participating in a variety of exhibitions across the country. Mike’s work has been covered by the BBC and ITV, and among his celebrity collectors are Imelda May, Sir Bradley Wiggins, Roger Taylor, and Zoe Ball. He has also completed a variety of commissions for brands such as Bacardi, Budweiser and Urban Outfitters. One of Mike’s unique David Bowie prints was signed by the singer himself, raising £22,000 at auction for the charity Cancer Research.

We’ve been working with Mike Edwards since 2011.
